We're New Church. Nice to meet you!

New Church West Georgia is a new United Methodist congregation in Carrollton, GA. We exist to invite, engage, and equip the next generation of followers of Christ at the University of West Georgia, in the city of Carrollton, and throughout the world. We currently meet on Sunday mornings for worship service. Along with Sunday morning services, New Church West Georgia hosts a worship service for college students at the University of West Georgia called UWG Wesley which meets each Wednesday night during the school semester at 8:00 PM at the Wesley House.
